Percussion may be transported on buses specifically reserved to transport band students if there are available empty seats leaving 2 rows between students and percussion, and all percussion items are stowed with the majority of the instrument below the top of the seat. All percussion hardware must be stored in a way to reduce the risk of instruments being projectiles in the event of an accident. No instruments may be stowed in the aisle.
